Our school band is made up of 250 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Each student works incredibly hard to become a better musician every single day. We are trying to make sure they have all the equipment they need to be successful.
Our band is like a family, and their band hall is a second home to many of the students.
Whether they are beginners practicing how to sit and hold an instrument, or advanced players working on a solo, students have a wonderful time being in the band.
Our mirrors are used as a teaching tool for our students so they can monitor and check their own development and progress. These tools are crucial for success and understanding.
Mirrors help the student see if everything they are doing is right in order to make the best sound possible.
We have large classes and do not have enough mirrors for our students to check and make sure they are doing everything correctly. We are also in dire need of concert toms. The majority of music we want to play asks for concert toms. Having mirrors and concert toms is going to help our students grow as musicians.
